% and the owners are saying just not a high enough percent for us to have this be a viable business. inowners are saying 22 of the 30 teams don't make a profit. they're willing or at least publicly saying they're willing to blow up this system. nba players are very well paid. the best in professional sports in the world. their average salary is between $5 million and $6 million. the nba players association will point that out, but the median salary between $2 million and $3 million. the problem is when your clarification is the median is only $2 million or $3 million, you don't have the sympathetic stance that will rally behind. >> billionaires and millionaires caught up the scenario. this has to be a pr nightmare, as well, for the nba. >> i reported on a number of work stoppages and sports disputes over money and the fans usually do come back and the senate would say it's because they're suckers. but, really, i think the nba is our entertainment. if it's there, you'll find it entertaining. why punish yourself. a hollywood strike for a while, but people aren't going to watch movies. maybe the
pieces this morning that suggested could be a template for future u.s. missions. the concept of libya -- a new model for? -- a new model for war? our question, again, libya, a new model for war? good morning. to set the stage about the u.s. approach under the leadership of president obama to the libya mission, let me show you some of the headlines today. for example, "the wall street journal" today.
